Mail Art

Hello everyone

Loving the opportunity to have a chat to you all again and yes, yes, I do need to make up for the time I've been away, so hoping you still enjoy reading my posts.

Today I'd like to share an altered pizza box, or mail-art, as they call it. I thought to quickly do it before work - yeah right, till I completely wreck it... So with a little gesso, (okay I lie, lots and lots of gesso) I managed to resurrect this little piece during my lunch hour.  So this was what I came up with, after the gesso ofcourse...



So ready to go and happy that I've been able to save the mornings whoopsie, I set off to the Post Office after work. Arrrgh, do they really have to put all those stickers on? I even asked them to put the express tape on the sides lol. And then just to make matters worse, I had a bit of a brain blur and added clear sticky tape, over the stickers, and all over my hard work. I wanted to make sure all stay on the box and the address or something does not fall off because I did not have time to gel it all in place. Mmmmm not so clever, Mail art gone wrong all over again. I  wrecked it... Oh well, I guess I'll have to spend a little more time on it next time  to do it properly.



See what I mean?

Enjoy whatever you have left of today, talk to you soon.
